The Valley of the Moon Garden Club, Inc. has been in the Sonoma Valley of California since 1951. We are an active, educational, and fun group of over 150 garden members, both men and women. Here are a few of the activities and features of the VOMGC.
- Promote interest in gardening
- Use water-wise, native, and pollinator plants in landscaping
- Protect natural habitats and environments
- Emphasize organic practices
- Share gardening knowledge and contribute to our local community
The Valley of the Moon Garden Club Inc. is a member of the Luther Burbank District of California Garden Clubs Inc. (CGCI) which is an added resource. Members are entitled to CGCI membership, which provides discounts to certain nurseries and botanical gardens.
The Valley of the Moon Garden Club has twelve monthly meetings each year. Nine monthly meetings are part of the Speaker Series and provide informative gardening topics, refreshments, and a garden raffle following the speaker. They are held at the Sonoma Veteran’s Memorial Hall, 126 First St. West, in Sonoma, CA, on the first Thursday of the month. There is a “Meet and Greet” at 6:30 p.m. with the speaker presentation at 7 p.m. The other three meetings, held at various locations, are devoted to the member potluck/picnics, and the December holiday celebration.
Club members also receive the monthly member newsletter with information on club activities, volunteer opportunities, horticulture column, and local gardening resources.
Beginning and experienced gardeners are welcome to join in. Here is our oldest gardener, 98 years young, with a lifetime of gardening experience.
Each summer season, members enjoy the bounty of their harvests!
